Mrs. Taylor has been a teacher for 16 years. After two years of teaching she transferred to New Haven and has been teaching here ever since. Mrs. Taylor teaches preschool through 6th grade general music, 7th and 8th grade general music, 7th and 8th grade choir, and high school choir. After this year, Mrs. Taylor is leaving New Haven.
Mrs. Taylor attended Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri. She went for her Bachelor’s degree in musical education. While in school there, Mrs. Taylor was able to go to Taiwan and play in a jazz band there.
Mrs. Taylor commented, “[I love] watching kids grow up and have an appreciation for music.” Mrs. Taylor told a story about a young boy in middle school choir: “He struggled to sing on pitch, and we worked hard. He ended up making all state choir in his sophomore year.”
Cassie Kuhlmann, sophomore, commented on Mrs. Taylor’s departure after this year, “I’m really going to miss her. She made choir a lot of fun.”
Ella Kuhlmann commented, “I have had a lot of fun in middle school choir. I’m really going to miss having her as a teacher.”
Chloe Lueckenhoff, sophomore, said, “I’m sad that she is leaving. I’m really going to miss her a lot.”
Katlin White, freshman, shared, “A lot of the upperclassmen are very upset that she is leaving. She is a very kind teacher and she will be missed by her students. I personally wish she would stay here, but she should be with her husband.”
Mrs. Taylor has changed the lives of many students at New Haven. We are surely going to miss her.
